Vegan Pumpkin Soup at Upshot Coffee

July 18, 2016


Everything was good about this lunch today at the Upshot Coffee – the amazing vegan pumpkin soup, the crusty tasty scone and the very good coffee – with excellent company (who had the vegetarian roasted pumpkin bagel). The cafe is on Bridle Path Road at the same location as the riding school.

Not great weather today, so it was nice to have a yummy brunch at Under the Red Verandah.


The Lemon Tree Cafe on St Asaph Street

January 23, 2015


Every time I walk past this cafe on St Asaph Street I think to myself I must go in there sometime. Well today I had the perfect excuse as I was working just down the road a bit and needed somewhere to have lunch.

The outside of the cafe really draws you in with the colourful planters and outdoor seating. But the magic is on the inside! Wow, what an eclectic mix of vintage furniture, artworks and d├ęcor, lots to look at. And the food and coffee was excellent too. And I wouldn’t lie about coffee being good, I’d just not mention it if it was bad. Yes, bit of a coffee snob.

Pink Sugar Opening in Oxford

October 18, 2014


Pink Sugar is located in Oxford (a rural town located about 40 minutes north of Christchurch). It is a vintage high tea cafe and eatery serving high teas, Devonshire teas, as well as cabinet food. They don’t officially open until Monday the 20th of October, but I got along to the official ‘ribbon cutting’ opening.

I absolutely love what Sally the owner has created here. She had a vision for a vintage tea shop and she has nailed it perfectly – from the chandeliers, the pink and soft blue floral wall paper, the gorgeous fine bone china, fine teas, and absolutely delicious food. I have no doubt that this new venture will be a roaring success and I look forward to many afternoon visits out there to enjoy the ambience.

Pink Sugar is located at 76 Main St, Oxford.

You can learn more about Pink Sugar at there Facebook page.
